About the event

Want the chance to show off your new skills? Students who attend all four festival workshops will have their own special showcase on Sunday, March 31 at 5pm!

In this class, appropriate for beginners and experienced improvisers alike, veteran improviser and improv teacher Paul Vaillancourt will teach you the approach known as the Triangle of the Scene. By using this approach, improvisers will become more connected to their character, their partner, and the environment around them. They will learn how to powerfully wield this trio of tools to build better, more grounded, and ultimately funnier scenes. This class is built on the belief that the foundation of any great improv scene is not saying funny things or acting crazy, but rather the relationship between the characters in the scene, and that everything else - the dialog, the plot, the premise, even the environment of the scene - is connected to and grows out of that relationship.

Paul Vaillancourt has been teaching and performing improv for over 30 years. In that time he has appeared all over the country including such notable venues as HBO’s Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Chicago’s iO (where he studied with the immortal Del Close), New York’s UCB Theater, and the iO West in Los Angeles (which he founded). Paul has also had success as an actor, writer, and producer creating and working on shows for a plethora of networks and outlets. He is the creator and host of “Improv Tips” on YouTube and the author of “The Triangle of the Scene: A simple, practical, powerful method for approaching improvisation” and the FREE book “5 Things Improvisers Can Do To Stay Creative, Feel Inspired and Have Fun!” He currently lives in LA with his wife, kids, and dogs, and he’s always up to talk about improv or action movies.
